Abstract Ethical and moral values lie at the root of employee behavior and activities. Hence, observance of professional ethics and the related benefits are among the most fundamental research topics in organizational areas. This descriptive-correlational research was performed according to the practical study objectives and through adopting a data collection approach. With the aim of exploring the mediating effect of organizational identification on the relationship between professional ethics, organizational citizenship behavior and job deviation behavior, a sample of 225 employees and hospital specialists were chosen from the cities of Maku, Showt and Poldasht using random stratified sampling. Data were gathered through standard questionnaires of Van Dick’s organizational identification, professional ethics, citizenship behavior and deviation behavior. In order to evaluate the relationship among variables measured in a conceptual model, Structural Equation Modeling was used. The results showed that there is a positive and significant relationship between organizational identification and professional ethics (r = 0.177) and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) (r = 0.179). Findings also showed that the relationship between professional ethics and citizenship behavior and deviation behavior is mediated through organizational identification. In the above-mentioned model, all regression weights were statistically significant, except for the relationship between professional ethics and deviation behavior. The results of this study indicated that professional ethics strengthened organizational identification on the one hand, and organizational identification strengthened citizenship behavior and reduced the deviation behavior of the employees and hospital specialists on the other hand.
